Subject: Weird Mix
Subject: 4 for FIRE
Saw this one GA style on the floor. Traded a copy in the Ventura parking lot a year or so later to some Philly guys and they knew..."That's the Fire tape, right?"
FIRE was the song of the night, clocking in at almost 11 min here, even with part of the last verse cut.
The early solos are solid precision but the real bliss starts right after the 7:43 cut mark when Jerry starts playing a TON of notes rapid fire. The afterburners give way to some scrambled eggs and then Jerry catches silly air all for himself at 8:49. Check this shit out...you know Jerry lived for those moments. And then he gently lays this flaming meteor to rest!
p.s. Go To Heaven was fresh and Alabama was starting to bring in the not-so-hardcore crowd. They LOVED the catchy Estimated ("California") that night. Jerry wha-wha-ed 'em and Weir woooed 'em good...new Heads were born that night.
Subject: THE OTHER ONE!!
This is a pretty jammed out Other One!! Not the best but a good one none the less. The Black Peter and Sugar Mag are the other highlights for me. Very nice jam at the end of Black Peter and it flows nicely into Sugar Mag....but it cuts before Sunshine Daydream!!! AAHHH!! Also I can't really hear Lee Oskar in some spots but it's just fine in others. The sound is not that great as it distorts on Phils notes alot. Too bad cause he's all over the place as usual. Also quite a bit of hiss. Only obtrusive on the quiet spots. All and all a really good show to add to your collection. I would give the above songs a 4 but the sound.....well.
